It's like tons of possibilities out there. ScummVM (for SCUMM games and more), VDMSound for "native Windows execution", or VMWare/QEMU/etc to emulate a PC to install DOS based systems on which will run literally any DOS game you may find.

When my PC dies and i cant buy one with a floppy drive anymore then i wont be able to play 1 or 2 at all.
You don't need to buy a PC with a floppy drive, because (A) you could take the floppy drive from the "died" PC or (B) can easily buy a USB floppy drive or (C) how about copying what's on the floppy to the harddisk, or more simple backup the directory where you installed the game.

There, stop whining, 3 working solutions for both of your real problems.
